What is a remark made by actor to the audience that the other actors are not supposed to hear?

Depending on several factors, an aside or a soliloquy. Typically, an aside is a short comment made directly to the audience. Think of saying something under one's breath.

So, based on the word 'remark' in your question, aside is probably the term you want.

The correct quotation is "Shall I hear more, or shall I speak at this?" "Shall I hear more" does not mean the same thing as "shall you hear more" Probably the best way to define an aside is a line said by a character which is unheard by anyone else on stage, but is heard by the audience. By this definition, the remark is an aside: Romeo says it but Juliet doesn't hear it. The Wikipedia definition of aside as a remark addressed to the audience is unhelpful, as it is unclear whether the remark is to be addressed to the audience or whether he is addressing himself. It depends on how the actor is directed.
